We are excited that you are interested in becoming a member of Grace Community Baptist Church. This is an important step in your spiritual journey. The Bible says every follower of Jesus should belong to a local church. It's through belonging to a church where you can own the vision, build your faith and be the message of hope to the world around you.
Becoming a member of GCBC begins by attending two meetings that will help you understand who we are, what and how we do things here, and how you can be involved.
1. MEETING WITH THE PASTOR
This is a meeting set aside for those who are interested in learning more about Grace Community Baptist Church. Our Senior Pastor, Cole Cleveland, will share his personal story and his vision for our church. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and get to know other staff members who can help you discover your next step in getting involved in the life of our church family.
2. MEMBERSHIP CLASS
This class is the second part of the membership process. After attending a DINNER WITH THE PASTOR event, you will be scheduled for the membership class. During this class, you will learn about the importance of church membership, discover what is expected from church members and church leaders, and hear about the many opportunities to serve here, there, and everywhere. At the end of the class, you will have the opportunity to join the church.
You must attend both meetings before becoming a member of Grace Community Baptist Church. We offer these meetings several times of the year to accommodate schedules.
3. FIND YOUR PLACE
God created you with a distinct personality, spiritual gifts, abilities, passions and experiences. Discovering how God designed you, equips you to find your place of service within the body of Christ, as well as, how to engage your gifts and abilities in a way that keeps you living on mission in your everyday life.
